Took a break from blogging, now all content is gone (9 posts)

    I took a break from blogging for a couple of months, and now it appears that all my content is completely gone. It still shows all my comments, categories, and tags, but it shows zero posts or pages, when I had a couple hundred posts. When I go to the categories page, it shows a number of posts for each category, but when I click on the number, it shows no posts. I literally haven't touched it for a couple of months, so I have no idea what happened, but I would like to have my content back. Any ideas?

    Nope, I kept meaning to but never got around to it.

    OK you should make a database backup before proceeding and then attempt a repair on the tables using the repair table option in phpMyAdmin

    but if all my content is gone, there isn't anything to back up, is there?

  6. It might not be really gone, no harm is making a backup anyway. Once you've done that then as cubecolour says attempt to repair the database.

    Apparently, all your posts are there: http://someonewhobakes.com/feed/

    I would try resetting permalinks to default.
